THE PLAYGROUND presents a night of electro and moombahton featuring CROOKERS + MORD FUSTANG + ALEX METRIC and godfather of the moombahton movement DAVE NADA and Matt Nordstrom aka NADASTROM + more @ KOKO on Saturday the 9th June.
The world renowned italian DJ/production duo CROOKERS, (Bot and Phra) have worked together since 2003 headlining festivals worldwide. With their remix of Kid Cudi’s “Day’N'Nite” entering the UK Singles Chart at number 2 the duo signed a deal with Interscope Records, and they released their new single “We Love Animals” under the label as their first single of their upcoming second studio album.
In May 2011, Crookers released their second album Dr Gonzo on MAD DECENT featuring Savage Skulls, Neoteric, and Wax Motif and has been described as a return to their original style.
After studying music at college in Guildford, ALEX METRIC released a string of singles on a series of small dance labels, a mix of progressive house, breakbeat and techno. His break came in 2006 when he signed to Adam Freeland’s Marine Parade label. Now one of dance music’s most exciting new talents he’s already working on his full artist album. Actually, it’s his second, but he canned the first one because he didn’t think it was good enough. “There are two sides to me,” he says. “I have this love of ’80s synth funk, but also this epic, tears of MDMA joy sound.” The unreleased album was the former, but the latter defines him now. “Because I put my heart and soul into my remixes, they haven’t dated. That’s really important to me, that they don’t date like a lot of dance music does.” he says.
In May HAEZER will embark on another European tour after playing in Germany, Italy, Holland, Czech Republic, Portugal and Austria late last year. While on tour, HAEZER was invited to play the legendary BEATPATROL festival in Vienna. His set followed Steve Aokiʼs on the DIM MAK stage which also hosted names such as Moby, Mr Oizo, Afrojack, Dada Life, Felix Cartal and Cyberpunkers. HAEZER joins us for a single London show this year before heading back to play a string of festivals across Europe. One of the rising stars in the electro camp catch HAEZER before he explodes!
Supporting will be the godfather of rising Moombahton movement across the pond, DAVE NADA and MATT NORDSTROM aka NADASTROM. Basically a sub-genre of electronic dance music and Reggaeton, Dave stumbled upon the genre in 2009 by combining Dutch House slowed down to 108- 110 bpm along with fusing reggaeton beats and percussion.
With support from breakthrough act BWANA, recently signed to MAD DECENT, FERAL IS KINKY, NEOTERIC, ESSBEEDEE, PUNX SOUNDCHECK, DELOOZE, STARPUNK, PHOTOMATIC, DAN MCKIE, MAKSIMCZYK and LOST BOYS THE PLAYGROUND embarks on another rambunctious affair bringing you the best in electronic music!!

THE NOTHING SPECIAL..

Step up, step up! krankbrother are very proud to announce our boldest party yet – a daytime STREET PARTY right in the heart of Shoreditch on June 9th. That’s right – we will be closing down Clifton Street (EC2A) in Shoreditch at both ends, and running a whole afternoon of electronic music, including performances from Wolf & Lamb, Guti, Stimming (Live), Adeline and krankbrothers.
Here at krankbrother, we’ve always looked on enviously at the fantastic Notting Hill Carnival. We felt strongly that we in East London should be able to celebrate East London’s thriving electronic music scene in the same grand tradition of the British Street Party. That is what this event is all about – celebrating East London’s diverse and hugely popular dance music scene, all in a wonderful outdoor setting in the heart of Hackney. It’s taken a lot of hard work to get the event organised and authorised by the authorities, which makes us even happier to be going ahead with it!
The event will feature a large stage, and all the top end production levels that have become synonymous with all krankbrother events.
There will also be delicious hot food on offer all day from La Piadina Pronta, and several other fantastic trraders. La Piadina Pronta will serve hot, made-to-order Piadina (Italian flat bread) filled with fresh ingredients sourced from local producers. Each Piadina comes with a thin layer of sundried tomato paste, and is filled with your choice of freshly cut meat (parma ham, salami, mortadella), cheese (buffalo mozzarella, stracchino) and salad. We will also have delicious juicy organic burgers and much much more. So please come with an appetite!
On the drinks side, as well as the usual array, we will also be serving some British summer classics like Pimms, Tom Collins and Punch.
The party will run from 1pm – 10pm, and there will be an indoor after-party starting immediately afterwards (tickets & info will be available shortly).
